My husband and I were here several days in late May on the recommendation of friends who had stayed here on multiple occasions for longer periods of time. We had a top floor apartment facing the garden. It was spacious, light, and we enjoyed the garden and rooftop views. We found the location ideal. We walked to all tourist spots... More

It is hard to imagine that we would ever stay anywhere but the the Palazzetto da Schio when visiting Venice. This was our second stay in as many years and this visit was just as fabulous as the first. On this visit we stayed in the two bedroom apartment that is located on the top floor. It was comfortable, roomy,... More

I am always happy to take care of my guests, I understand that even a cold can be a big problem to solve in a foreign country and language. Webby has such a success with most of my guests that I am thinking about adding her to the attractions of Palazzetto da Schio! More

We have just spent an absolutely blissful week in Venice, made all the more blissful by staying at the Palazzetto da Schio. Apartment 2 at the top of the house has three charming, generously-sized rooms – an elegant sitting room, a thoughtfully equipped kitchen / dining room, and a comfortable bedroom – as well as a bathroom with a roofscape...

A delightful property in an excellent location: on a beautiful canal, but at the quieter end so not too overrun with tourists. About 5 minutes' walk to the Guggenheim, 10 to the Accademia. Self catering, but only 15 minutes' walk at most to the supermarket, along a very pleasant promenade looking over to Giudecca and two beautiful churches. 5 minutes'... More

Thank you for the review and sorry for the kitchen! It is a peculiar feature of this house that the largest apartment has the smallest kitchen and the smallest apartment has the biggest, which was the original kitchen of the house when we lived in it as one home. More

We had a most enjoyable 10 night stay in Apartment 2 in the Palazzetto da Schio from 23 March to 2 April 2014. Contessa Anna gave us excellent directions for finding the Palazzetto which were easy to follow. The apartment is on the top floor, which is about 45 steps from street level, and overlooks a lovely garden which is... More

My family and I loved staying at Palazzetto da Schio. The location was perfect, walking distance to just about everywhere, yet very close to the waterbus if desired. Dorsoduro is not too crowded, and has some interesting shops, galleries and restaurants. The apartment was spacious, which was lucky as we encountered 3 days of non stop rain, fortunately we had...

My spouse and I spent a week in Venice in Oct 2013 staying at wonderful Palazzetto da Schio in Apt #2. This is a large, luxurious apartment on the top floor overlooking the garden and very quiet and sunny.

We stayed in apartments 4 & 5 on the mezzanine level with our 5 grown children. There was plenty of room for everyone and the apartments were charming, clean, comfortable, and well equipped. The location was perfect – just enough off the beaten path that there were few tourists, yet close to shops, restaurants and vaporetto stops. The Contessa da... More

Family reunions are always cheerful events and I like having them. Getting up early to make sure everything goes well is a must for me. As for credit cards I'm considering various options: the problem is I want to keep my rates as low as possible while bank commissions are very high. More

It's a wonderful way to enjoy Venice. Spacious, clean, great location. It's located on a quiet canal very near La Salute and The Guggenheim. I love entering our apartment, hoping that the "tourists" on the bridge at the end of the canal think I'm a native!

We agree wholeheartedly with all the praise for the Contessa da Schio and the Palazzetto da Schio. We have just completed a wonderful visit there, and without question, it opened up a new Venice for us, one in a picturesque and quiet residential quarter that nonetheless is conveniently located to just about everything. The Contessa is extraordinary, a warm hostess... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Palazzetto da Schio has been my family residence in Venice for a few centuries; the house is XVIth century, and I have completely restored it dividing it into 5 apartments, for myself, my relatives and for my guests.Apt N.1 «PIANO NOBILE» is my own home and it is available for all kinds of parties and receptions.Apt N.2 «TOP FLOOR/WEST» is on the top floor, at the back of the house: the view is very pleasant on the rooftops of Venice and the garden below. It has a bedroom with queen size bed, one bathroom, one sitting room (with a comfortable bed-sofa for a third guest) and a big livable kitchen. Apts N.3 and N.4 «TOP FLOOR/EAST» AND «MEZZANINE-CANAL» are, respectively, on the top floor and on the mezzanine floor. They are available all year round.The plans of these two apartments are very similar: two bedrooms (one with queen size bed, the other with two or three single beds), 2 bathrooms, one sitting room and a small kitchen.The top floor apt. has also a sofa trundle bed for two extra guests.All the rooms are on the front of the house with a very nice view over the canal and plenty of light and sun.Apt N.5 «MEZZANINE-GARDEN» is on the mezzanine floor on the back of the house ; it is very quiet, with a restful view of the garden with its medieval well. It has a bedroom with queen size bed, a living-room with an alcove (elevated from the floor) that has two extra beds, a bathroom and a kitchen.The furniture of all the apartments is mostly antique ranging from the XVII century onwards, but water, gas, electricity and telephone systems are all modern and independent.Each apartment is completely equipped with linen, blankets, kitchen ware, etc.We have Wi-fi Internet connection in the house, free for all the guests.The little garden is at the disposal of all the guests.We are in the Dorsoduro area, very close to the Salute, on Rio della Fornace, which is the second canal joining the Grand Canal to the Giudecca Canal. ... more   less
